Securing Your Interests With a Power of Attorney
We handle many different types of powers of attorney, including:
- Medical Powers of Attorney: A medical power of attorney (sometimes called a health care directive) gives the designee, called an agent, the power to make decisions about your treatment, and access to important medical records. It may also specify the types of treatment, giving the agent guidance to you want employed or excluded.
- Powers of Attorney for Financial Matters: A financial power of attorney designates the person who will make decisions regarding the management of your assets and liabilities, or transact your business on your behalf. Customarily, this type of power of attorney grants the right to make decisions to buy or sell property, authority to handle banking matters and tax issues and otherwise manage finances in ways that best protect you.
- Durable Powers of Attorney: This is simply any power of attorney that remains enforceable after your incapacity.
